The Smart Ignorant of the Republican Party


But in Trump’s world, that could not possibly be the end. “He will continue to fight” as some of his ardent supporters repeated at every opportunity, to anyone who cares to listen.

The January 6, 2021, a date slated for a joint session of Congress during which the legislative body will enter into congressional record the outcomes of the 2020 presidential elections for all 50 States, Mr. Trump worked tirelessly behind the scene to lobby Republican legislators who, like him, do not believe the United States Constitution matters.

The first individual to offer Trump a lifeline is the Senator from Missouri, Josh Hawley who made the announcement he will object to Biden’s certification as the next president. In Trump’s world, that was good news, as such move would guarantee a debate on the floor followed by mandatory votes of all legislators.

On another front, Louie Gohmert, a Republican Congressman from Texas filed a lawsuit which asked the judge to force Vice President Mike Pence NOT to follow the instructions outlined in the Constitution, a lawsuit which was immediately rejected by the judge, a Trump’s appointee.
